Happy Birthday, Nate Nelson and Bobbie Smith

This Day in Music lists more than 20 musical personalities born on this day — including three each in 1947 and 1950 alone.

Two are here: Nate Nelson of The Flamingos, who sing I Only Have Eyes for You (above)  and Bobbie Smith of The Detroit Spinners (later the Spinners), who sing Working My Way Back to You (below). Nelson was born in 1932 and Nelson four years later.

I confess that I am not entirely confident of which of the singers are Nelson and Smith in the clips, though I am pretty sure both are singing lead. It is the thought that counts, I guess… Anyone who could help me out, please do.
